Student Activity - A day in the life of a scientist
Scientists and crew members on the Tangaroa journeyed around the Ross Sea of Antarctica for 8 weeks. During this time, they investigated different forms of marine life, looking at the biodiversity of the Ross Sea environment, from the ocean surface to the seafloor 4,000 metres deep.
Can you picture what this exciting voyage might have been like? Imagine that you are one of the scientists on board the Tangaroa and write a diary about what you think you might do for a day.
- What hours do you think you would work? What time might you get up?
- What sort of things would do in a day?
- What foods might you eat on board a ship?
- What would it be like living and working with other people constantly for 8 weeks?
